Therapeutic thermal water and the Dudinka Thermal Water Park

Residents of Eco Hotel Leo visiting Dudinka for the first time are bound to ask: What makes this cosy town in Slovakia unique? 

There are many interesting attractions in the spa centre, but the locals are especially proud of the healing thermal water and the modern Dudinka water park. There is even a legend about an unusually beautiful fairy Dudinka who turned an ordinary spring into a healing one and even saved a Roman general by getting him drunk on the healing liquid. Considering that this story may well be a myth, let's look at the undeniable facts about the properties of spring water. Let's not forget the water park, which is definitely worth a visit during your first days in town.

What are the properties of Dudince's thermal waters?

The uniqueness of spring water lies in its exceptional composition that combines carbon dioxide and hydrogen sulphide. Such water can be found only in Japan on a global scale. The spa town is therefore an ideal place for the treatment of various diseases:

  • musculoskeletal system (from arthritis and arthrosis to rheumatism, polyarthritis, osteoporosis and Bechterew's disease);
  • Cardiovascular system (coronary heart disease, myocardial infarction);
  • hypertension;
  • neurological diseases (paralyses, consequences of poliomyelitis, meningitis, Parkinson's disease, etc.);
  • Problems after a stroke.

The thermal water is also lifesaving for patients with occupational diseases diagnosed as a result of radiation or prolonged exposure to compressed air.

Due to the content of Glauber's Salt (magnesium sulfuricum), the water is used for detoxification of the body, cleansing of the gastrointestinal tract and treatment of diseases of the lymphatic system.
